ICRA'07 Memories

I have been the General Chair of the 2007 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA'07) that was held in Rome, April 10-14, 2007. According to most participants (over 1500), the conference has been very successful, both from the scientific and the social point of views. A few personal pictures of the event.
